I want to tell you that it didn't take long to realize that I have no constructive criticism on this index, because it's dead-on...you can be sure I'll be turning to you again soon. (Seth Maislin, Managing Partner, Potomac Indexing (Index for Visual Arts Units for All Grades, 2008))

I looked over everything closely, and again, found it AMAZING how you pulled out the concepts... I think you did a great job with some rather unusual categories! (Anna Vemer Andrzejewski, author, Building Power: Architecture and Surveillance in Victorian America, University of Tennessee, 2008)

I think it is a fantastic index: thorough, focused, and reader-friendly. (Kevin Floyd, author, Reification of Desire: The Queering of Marxism, University of Minnesota Press, 2009

I am very impressed with your thoroughness and the perceptive way in which you thought about the memoir’s content. I think the index will serve readers well by making Jobe’s topics and opinions accessible. (David Hsiung, editor, A Mountaineer in Motion: The Memoir of Dr. Abraham Jobe, 1817-1906, University of Tennessee Press, 2009)

...praise and gratitude for meticulous work. (Virgil Nemoianu, author, Postmodernism and Cultural Identities, Catholic University of America Press, 2009)

You did a great job on the index. It was a huge, complicated project and so important to determining how the book will be read and used. Thank you so much for your thoughtful and meticulous work. (Mary Wingerd, author, North Country: The Making of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Press, 2010)

I must say that I was really impressed by the index. You came up with every word/term that I could think of to check. (Nicanor Pier Giorgio Austriaco, author, Biomedicine and Beatitude: An Introduction to Catholic Bioethics, Catholic University of America Press, 2011)

Browsing through your index makes one interested in the book and reveals what information can be found there. Excellent! (Samuel Arnet, publisher, Religion in Play: Games, Rituals, and Virtual Worlds, 2012)

You're my go to indexer. (Thomas Wells, editor, University of Tennessee Press, 2012)

I just wanted to let you know that Melvin Rogers had no changes to your index. He told me that it was "perfectly done.". Good job; thanks!

The index has a very professional appearance and an orderliness and logic resulting from the smart decisions you’ve made. Thank you. (Jack Glazier, author, Been Coming Through Hard Times, University of Tennessee Press, 2012)
